Homemade Linen Spray and Air Freshener

I have always loved linen spray but felt bad about the price, always seemed like you were paying a premium for just a label. So I have decided to try making my own. I have googled a bunch of recipes and this one seems to be the simplest. Here is the recipe

2 Tbs Vodka or rubbing alcohol
20ish drops of essential oil (I chose lavender and eucalyptus)
Distilled Water
Spray Bottled
Sharpie Marker
Label (http://blog.worldlabel.com)

Label bottle with sharpie marker make sure to write "shake well" on the bottle just as a reminder. Mix 2 Tbs of Vodka and 20 drops of essential oil in the spray bottle and add distilled water till bottle is filled. Let sit and spray a light mist over sheets, rugs or sofa.

You will need
A glass container with a lid (or a basil jar that has a ring and fabric)
Baking soda
Essential oil

Fill the container 1/4 of the way with baking soda, and add 8-10 drops of essential oil. Then add a lid with holes poked into it. This step can be done with a hammer and a nail.
